Velma Louise Gallimore, 92, of Tulsa, passed away on Sunday, December 5, 2010, in Owasso. Velma was born in Drumright, OK on December 17, 1917, to Oklahoma pioneers Ed and Belle Briley and was the youngest of seven children. She graduated from Seminole High School in 1935, as class Valedictorian and attended Oklahoma Baptist University, majoring in Journalism for one year, then worked for the U. S. Government in Washington, D.C. and New York City. Retiring in 1984, from Amoco Production as secretary in Gas Sales, she promptly became caregiver to her sister who suffered from Alzheimer's until 1996. Her time was then spent traveling with her daughter and puttering in her garden. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her brother, five sisters and her son, Dale. She is survived by her daughter, Clover, of Tulsa, two grandchildren by Dale and two great-grandchildren. My deepest appreciation is extended to Sojourn Care for their total dedication in providing superior hospice care and to the Sojourn volunteer group who crafted a lovely lap quilt. My mother thought it was beautiful and was on her at time of passing. A very special acknowledgment of gratitude is extended to Jamie G. who always focused on and fulfilled the needs of my mother all the while experiencing the illness and loss of her own cherished family member. Her grandbabies don't know yet how fortunate they are going to be. Service will be held at 10:00 A.M., Thursday, December 9, 2010, at Memorial Park Chapel. Moore's Eastlawn Chapel.
